Eyeliner -CLINIQUE -Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen

Wanted to love it because it's one of the only liquid liners that I don't get an allergic reaction from but this just didn't work for me. Easily smudges/runs off. Physician's Formula Eye Booster Eyeliner works much better and is cheaper as well.


Moisturizers -CLINIQUE -Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator

This product isn't the best, but I find myself repurchasing it as it does it's job, it looks pretty on my counter and it never breaks me out. It's good because it does exactly what it says it will, and very quickly hydrates your skin.

I like using this in between heavy moisturisers to give my skin space to breathe, yet not allowing it to get dry at all.

I bought this product because my face was dry after 1-2 weeks use I got cystic acne and many blackheads which is unusual for me, once I stopped using the product it cleared up. I did appear to hydrate some areas but, then areas around my nose started getting drier and flaky. It also made my foundation patchy even after waiting 15 mins for it to dry.
An expensive product and I sill have lots left! So I now just use it as an under eye cream at night. The packaging is cute though, and I like the glass container.


Moisturizers -CLINIQUE -Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

on 12/9/2018 8:19:00 AM

This was one of the first true skincare products I used growing up. I always found the lotion a bit too greasy as I have combination skin. It's more oily than dry but it is definitely dry around my nose and chin. The gel is perfect for me I use this daily and multiple times when I'm not wearing makeup. I love this gel because it gives me the perfect amount of moisture, This helps balance my oily and dry patches. It also leaves my skin so soft and smooth. I have never broken out from this either. The price is great so I bought the jumbo size and I like that it's affordable and hygienic,

This also makes a nice primer base, it has so many functions than just a moisturizer. I'm so happy I came back to this product.

I love to use this product as HAND overnight mask, not on my face.


Lotions/ Creams -CLINIQUE -Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream

on 12/8/2018 11:15:00 AM

Product wise this is a very good cream. This is Clinique's best product. It's moisturizing and very light-weigh, yet it moisturizes incredibly well. This is even better than their lotion (especially in the winter). It also works as a great primer/base for powder makeup (not liquid foundation it will come off/slide). I use with with Mac Studio fix and it works great. I really hope they never stop making this because it's one of the best. I always buy creams and never lotions and I find that Clinique knows their stuff when it comes to basic moisturizing. This also leaves a semi-matte feel to the skin, but provides moisture. That is why I say you can use it with powder. If you are looking for a matte lotion that is extremely mattifying try Aveeno. All of their products are matte and keep your skin oil-free due to the colloidal oatmeal flour. I really don't like seeing negative reviews on this product bc this is seriously the best before makeup and days without. Clinique understands how to keep the barrier functioning at its best.

The price is kind of expensive for the little amount that you get. You don't need to use a lot but I wish there was more. I like to use a lot in the winter, at night. The packaging is cute and pretty and travel-friendly. I still want to a bigger version of this. I also don't appreciate that the cream is yellow. They can get rid of that. Other than that, the formula is perfect and genius. If you want something more affordable, check out Aveeno. Especially if you have sensitive skin. Aveeno works wonders.

Moisturizers -CLINIQUE -Pep-Start Hydroblur Moisturizer

foto

WHOA. I did not expect to fall in love with any product that says mattifying moisturizer on the label. That usually means it's for oily skin types, and I am as dry as possible during the winter! This stuff is great, though! It really does moisturize and have this cool blurring effect that I love as a canvas before applying foundation. I've only been using it about a week, so we'll see how it goes through other seasons, etc. I only use it in the morning, as I don't need the mattifying or blurring effects at night. My morning routine goes like this:

1. Wash face, sometimes, if I'm not feeling lazy, with Philosophy Purity cleanser
2. Toner, Kiehl's Calendula (this is often step 1, because I seldom wash my face in the am)
3. Serum, The Ordinary Buffet or Hylamide SubQ
4. Vitamin C, Hylamide C25
5. Sunscreen, Shiseido in the blue bottle
6. Clinique Hydroblur
7. Sometimes I add a touch of Tatcha Silk Canvas in a few areas, sometimes I don't.

After that, I put on my makeup. I've never had an issue with pilling, I think it may be because I use chemical sunscreen. (Physical sunscreen tends to cause pilling with many of my products, so I finally had to go for convenience and cosmetic elegance.) My skin looks so smooth after I apply the Hydroblur. This is what I wanted Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base to be, but that one was an overpriced underperformer for me. I'm honestly still amazed at how hydrating the Hydroblur is! It has some good ingredients as well, such as shea butter and mango seed butter, along with hyaluronic acid, ceramides and squalane. I got this on sale, but even at $29.50 for 50ml, it's a steal, and I hope this one holds up once warmer weather comes! I started using it in December, so we'll see.


Treatments (Face) -CLINIQUE -Fresh Pressed Daily Booster with Pure Vitamin C 10%

on 12/7/2018 5:08:00 AM

This is the first vitamin C I tried. I assume there are better products out there but I don't know for sure. So please take this review with a grain of salt.
I got this to help with some dark spots. Been using it for 2 weeks so it's too early to say if this works. What i can say is that I hate applying it.
The dispenser itself is a good idea - keep the vitamin C fresh until you want to mix it. But it doesn't work for me. Sometimes I do feel the graininess of the vitamin, sometimes there's not enough product coming out. It's inconsistent or its just sensitive to the fact that I'm not pressing it exactly the same way each time... because I'm human.
As for the priduct itself, it mixes the vitamin with an amollient that I hate. Feels like way too much silicone and it's sticky and uncomfurtable in the 20 minutes it takes to dry. I have very dry skin so after using this booster, I want to put on a moisturiser or a mask, especially at night. I feel all this silicone is just getting in the way of other products since it's occlusive. And I'm sure there's a vitamin C out there that allows using a moisuriser after since that's what you're supposed to do with this kind of product.

Mascara -CLINIQUE -High Impact Mascara

I'm so sad to see that i'm the exception here who actually loves this mascara. I find this mascara great for everyday use. It provides great length and volume for everyday wear. It has a nice black colour which isn't dramatic. It removes easily with my Bioderma Cleansing Water. Does not smudge either and it's economical when compared to Dior, Chanel, YSL, etc. I will repurchase for sure.

If you want drama - dark, rich black pigment with alot of volume and length plus helping it stay curled all day - try the Chanel Revolution Mascara. I LOVE THAT! It is my HG! I will warn you though that it does smudge if you don't wear powder underneath the eyes. And after washing I am still left with a tad bit of the mascara smear under the eyes; hence I only wear this for special occasions. Cannot be bothered with the high maintenance everyday.

Treatments (Face) -CLINIQUE -anti blemish solutions spot treatment gel

on 12/6/2018 9:21:00 AM

This stuff is AMAZING! I’ve been using it as an all over face cream and the occasional spot treatment as part of my nightly routine and it works wonders. I’m writing this review because of a recent pimple it saved me from and I’m surprised how quickly it took care of it! I didn’t cleanse with Clinique for a couple of nights because I couldn’t get to the store and had a small breakout, including one horrible cyst on my chin. It was about the size of a dime, very deep beneath the skin, and hard to the touch. I had no idea how to resolve it so I cleansed normally and applied this gel to it and hoped for the best. In the morning it had shrunk excessively and was no longer red or painful! In ONE night! All in all it only took 3 nights to completely clear it and there’s no redness or scarring left over! This stuff really is a miracle worker!

My one caution is that it can be extremely drying if you don’t have oily skin or use a top notch moisturizer (I used Clinique moisture surge). This item is a must have staple in my cleansing routine!

Cleansers -CLINIQUE -Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam

on 12/6/2018 9:07:00 AM

Let me say- this stuff WORKS. I had perfect skin in high school and then broke out horrifically as an adult. I struggled for over two years to find a solution that would make a dent in it- I tried every single product almost from cheap drugstore to expensive lines like Dermalogica and having my skin worked on by a pro every other week and natural remedies. After two weeks of using this and the rest of their line (toner and salicylic acid gel) my face had almost NO acne and it has stayed that way for the past 6 months. This line saved my skin and my confidence! Thank you Clinique!!!!

Moisturizers -CLINIQUE -ID Custom Blend Hydrator Collection

on 12/6/2018 2:04:00 AM

I was very excited for the launch of the new Clinique ID Custom Blend Hydrator Collection. With Clinique ID you get to choose a base moisturizer- the dramatically different gel, dramatically different moisturizering lotion, or the dramtically different hydrating jelly. Once you choose from the three base moisturizers you then get to choose a cartridge full of specific ingredients based on your main concern: irritation, lines and wrinkles, fatigue, and pores and texture. There are 16 different combinations to choose from. I must say that all the formulas are very basic and not very exciting in terms of antioxidants and beneficial ingredients. The nice is that most people won't have any issues with skin sensitivity from any of the formulas. The bummer is that these formulas likely won't give amazing results on it own. You must still use your normal serums and treatments to really get significant results treating any of these concerns. My video review and demo/ how to use can be seen here:

Cleansers -CLINIQUE -Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

on 12/5/2018 3:46:00 AM

foto

Pros
- melts nicely
- rinses off well

Cons
- doesn't last me very long
- expensive for the amount you get and how long it lasts
- not significantly better than good old coconut oil, although it is nice to switch it up a bit

Overall
- nice indulgence but not worth it. Prefer farmacy cleansing balm (which is unfortunately more expensive and less product) and coconut or other oil to this one.
- worth trying since its not bad if you're interested in cleansing balms

Cleansers -CLINIQUE -Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

on 12/5/2018 1:21:00 AM

I’ve always known to double cleanse, years before Micellar Water and stuff was invented. Intuitive!!!! It just makes sense if wearing all this crap (not even eye — face: spf is hard to remove, add some maybe long wear foundation/concealer to that, and your hopefully mild pH balanced cleanser ain’t gonna get the job done). My actual first time w using an oil was some 8-ish years ago I don’t even know if still exists — it was a cleansing oil by Nude. So then I tried everything from wipes (irritating & drying) to balms to reg oils to designated cleansing oils to the micellar waters (bleh I needs me some grease). I like a balm or oil cuz I have dry skin and I like how it breaks down ALLLL.

Anyways I used Clinique >20 years ago... I just started to enjoy some (very limited admittedly) products again at 39 and this is #1 of those — dare I say it’s my abso fave HG first cleanse?! After allllll I’ve tried which is like literary every single one?! Idk what it is... I love it so so much. I love the look of it, reaching into jar, scooping the stuff out (ESPECIALLY a brand new one! Up there w breaking a creme brûlée!) and emulsifying the balm to a thick oil that takes. Off. EVERYTHING!!! It never ever burns me, even if I’ve been overzealous with acid exfoliation or tret.... soothing always. No scent. It’s a very very effective yet enjoyable (in a sensory way, for me anyway) remover of all things. My 2 HG regular 2nd (or am alone) cleansers are Clinique EXTRA mild (pH of 5 correct me if I’m wrong), and the way less spendy (and weirdly in body wash aisle at least at my rite aid) Eucerin pH5 for face and body. Idc about pH of my body cleanser as I only (in cold weather) wash my dry limbs occasionally or I am a scaly lizard. Maybe some dry brushing and heavy moisture. I use more deodorizing washes for my ‘parts’ that get a thorough washing 2/day. You know what I’m referring to don’t make me say it. Hands constantly washed (APPLY & REAPPLY SPF if u do all your actives on your French Face like me). Face well I think we know I’m one of the skincare obsessed so...

If u break out I do not know what to tell you, they’ll always give a sample!! I do anti-aging skincare only. If you’re not double cleansing at night yet, get with the progrum, would ya? Even if ya don’t wear makeup... I KNOW youre ALL using spf 365 so get that shite off! I’ve bought many and will continue!

I got this in a deluxe sample size from a bonus & I gave it to my mother to use & I think she's enjoying using this in the winter Bc she has extremely dry skin especially during the cold winter seasons & this cream has a lot of silicones in it to moisturize her skin ! But I would not buy it for her Bc the jar packaging sucks! It's unsanitary & the good ingredients go bad inside it ! Clinique makes a lot of great creams but unfortunately they are in jars like the Paula b lady says! But since this was a add on free bonus it's fine to try but not buy ! LOL!
